A Long Way Around
South Korea – 01:15:16
Written by Seung-hyun Yi
Lee Ok-sun (b. 1927) lives in the “House of Sharing”, a nursing home of the Victims of Japanese Military Sexual Slavery.
Lee had lived in China after Korea was liberated in 1945. With the help of the House of sharing, she could finally return to his beloved home country in 58 years and restart her life.
The Victims shared the same suffering but not the path after they were liberated. So, they often run into complication while living together. But they understand and encourage each other, and become a true “family”
But as time lapses, their “family” whom they are relying on and who cried out for the restoration of their dignity are passing away.
The film captures the stories of the Victims from the perspective of Lee Ok-sun.
